Happy 1st of May! – Hauskaa Vappua

Workers Day here in Finland today, a day celebrated since 1890 to mark the beginning of the long awaited Spring and very sadly it snowed! 
 In addition to celebrating Labour Day, in Finland, it is also a traditional spring feast of university students, and the name day of the catholic saint Walburga, commemorated in former times, when Finland still was a catholic country.
